  1. Thanks for the detail information. It will appear that going multi beam will be a real upgrade. I found that it will cost $5900 to include this option, so it must be legal in Singapore. But the current ILS came "free" with W212 fl which gives me one more reason to hold on to the old car.
  2. Thanks Kepiting1 for your reply. Of course it will be great to retrofit it or order the car with ILS headlights. I was just wondering if it bugs owners enough to do so. After I posted the question I realize that not all W212 fl owners will have ILS headlights so it may be an upgrade instead of a downgrade for W212 owners with non LED lights. So I guess I was just me or a small group of owners who will have issues with this. BTW e class cars ordered now will come with new engine that is going to be fitted in the face-lift version i.e. look of the car is the current W213 but with new engine.
  3. I am considering changing to W213 from my current w212. Was told all variants of E200 and E250 all came with high performance LED lights and not intelligent LED lights. Considering that W212 came with intelligent LED, I wonder if this will be a downgrade as the lights cannot swivel and are unable to auto adjust their height of illumination (my guess). Any comments from current owners of W213 is highly appreciated.
  4. Was told the same on warranty of my E200 engine mount when I complained about vibrating steering wheel slightly more than 2 years into ownership. But they changed the engine mount for free out of good will. Instead I was charged for the transmission mount that has to changed at the same time. Was puzzled by this arrangement but did not make a fuss as the transmission mount was much cheaper.
  5. Just let the workers in the tyre shop know that your car is equipped with TPMS and they know what to do. The sensors have to be removed and reinstalled.
  6. I found that when my car battery was weak the electronics of the car went wonky. Example: autolight will not be switched on even during heavy rain, car cannot recognise my key for keyless go. All these "faults" went away after I changed my main battery that was 2.5 years old.
  7. Hi all, Where can I get original New Mercedes rims for W212 FL other than at C&C? Appreciate recommendation and suggestions. Thanks. Corgi
  8. I never understood what it means to cover total demage cost. The insurance I got is replacement of a new car if the car is less than 1 year old and 110% of market price of the car after the first year if it is deemed not economical for repair after an accident.
  9. I did not renew with AIG after first year. You can opt for your workshop of choice ie CnC when you buy the insurance from another company. Same with replacement car but may not be 15 days and may not be a merc though you can pay more to get a lux car ( whatever that means). I saved $500 switching while still enjoy almost identical coverage. I got AXA flexidrive from a Broker.
  10. That was what the SA told me. But I mentioned that they should bring this up to MB Germany. It may be a small glitch but I will be surprised that the German would choose to ignore it if they know about it. I deal with Germans in my work and I am always impressed by their attention to details, which is one of the reasons I choose a German-made car. It is also possible that MB Germany only deals with issues that compromise safety. Most importantly, may be nobody is bothered about it except me. I just wanted to confirm that it is "like that" in everyone's W212.
  11. Hi, Has anyone noticed that the date is not displayed on the screen for the audio system of W212? If you go into the system there is actually means to change the setting of the display and format of date and year. But the change is not reflected on the screen. I think it is a software problem but the SA at C&C says that nothing can be done. Any comments? Corgi
  12. The sound is not very loud, I have to switch off the audio and listen carefully before noticing it. I am concerned that it may get worse. For me,if I steer towards the left , the sound will disappear for a while. I am bringing the car back next week to check. Also the sound insultaion is not as good as my Volvo and Audi, can hear the motocycle more clearly.
  13. Hi I notice "wind sound" in the cabin when my car (FLW212 E200) is travelling at 80km/h. = I notice the sound since the car was 1 week old. I suspect there is some small gap that resulted in whistling sound when the car is travelling at higher speed. Does anyone have this issue with their E class? This never happened to my previous two cars ( a Volvo and an Audi). Corgi
  14. I sent the car for tyre rotation this weekend. Nothing special needs to be done. The in car computer registered the tyre pressure after some distance of driving, no resetting required. Just an update. Regards, Corgi
